Ten random things: November 16

Ten famous jazz musicians:

  1. John Dankworth (alto saxophone)
  2. Louis Armstrong (trumpet)
  3. Benny Goodman (clarinet)
  4. William "Count" Basie (piano)
  5. Charlie Mingus (double bass)
  6. Charlie Christian (guitar)
  7. Chico Hamilton (drums)
  8. Ella Fitzgerald (vocals)
  9. Jean-Baptiste "Toots" Thielemans (harmonica)
  10. Milt Jackson (vibraphone)

To the best of my recollection, only one of the musicians listed above has been mentioned in a Futurama audio commentary track. (Toots Thielemans, if you must know. I think it was in " Bendin' In The Wind".)
